TWO Illinois members to receive national awards!

In conjunction with the NEXT Conference, APTA will host their Honors and Awards Ceremony to recognize members’ outstanding achievements in the areas of education, practice and service, publications, research, academic excellence. 

This year, two of our Illinois members are being recognized!

Donna Frownfelter, PT, DPT, MA, FAPTA, Board- Certified Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Clinical Specialist, joins the rank of the honored few who are recognized for their leadership, influence, and achievements in the profession for more than 15 years. Dr. Frownfelter will receive the Catherine Worthingham Fellows of the American Physical Therapy Association (FAPTA) designation, the highest honor among APTA’s membership categories. This designation honors individuals whose contributions to the profession through leadership, influence, and achievements demonstrate frequent and sustained efforts to advance the physical therapy profession.

Michelle Diaz, SPTA from Morton College, is one of the recipients of the Minority Scholarship Award. This award recognizes SPT and SPTA students currently in their final year of an accredited program and is sponsored by the Minority Scholarship Fund and voluntary contributions. Recipients of this Scholarship Award must participate in minority affairs activities and services, demonstrate the potential for superior achievements in the physical therapy profession, excel academically, and exemplify professionalism as a future physical therapist or physical therapist assistant.

Join us in congratulating Donna Frownfelter, PT and Michelle Diaz, SPTA!

All APTA Awards and Honors Recipients will be recognized during the Honors & Awards Ceremony, which is scheduled for Thursday, June 13th (5:30-6:30 PM) at NEXT in Chicago.
